I am writing to advise you that Medway Council will shortly be carrying out footway resurfacing at the attached location overleaf. The work is programmed to start on or after MONDAY 10th JUNE 2019 FOR TWO WEEKS, between the hours of 7am to 7pm. Please note that dates may be subject to change if poor weather conditions or other difficulties are encountered.
Parking restrictions will be in force and I would kindly request for you to find alternative parking arrangements for the duration of these works. Failure to abide by the no parking restrictions may result in vehicle lifting equipment being used if necessary. There may also be periods where you will not be able to access your driveway, however we will endeavour to accommodate access to your property as much as possible.
If you have any vegetation that overhangs the public footway, may I ask for your co-operation by ensuring that this is cut back to your boundary, this will assist our contractor in executing the works without obstructions.
You may be entitled to receive a quotation for a new vehicle crossing (also known as a dropped kerb) or for an extension to an existing crossing as part of the resurfacing works. This allows vehicular access across the public footway into the boundary of your property and is offered at a reduced cost as part of the scheme. For further information, please contact the highways engineer on the above contact details provided.
Every effort will be made to keep disturbance and site noise to a minimum and for the works to be completed within the above timescales. I wish to apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused from these works.
Should you wish to make further enquiries regarding this work, you may do so using the contact details provided.
Jonathan Abel Assistant Engineer
Back in 1997 when rehearsals began for Dramarama’s first panto, ‘Up the beanstalk with Mother Goose’, who’d have thought I would be writing this all these years later!
It began as a church based group who wanted to bring drama to the peninsula to let youngsters see live theatre where they may not have the opportunity to do so.
The group has had new performers come and go, but there have been a core few that have been in every show. Dramarama is like a family. We have our ups and downs, but through it all we have supported each other both through good times and bad. Friends for life have been forged, and this will always be the case.
After 21 years of producing and directing for Dramarama, I have made the hard decision to retire from leading the group. I hope that the group will continue, perhaps in a different guise. (This is for the committee to discuss and decide). I will continue to be involved with making costumes if I am needed.I would like to thank everybody who, over the years have supported me 100% even when they felt my ides were a bit bonkers!! This includes those people that helped from the side-lines. Organising music, coaching singers, making props and scenery, working backstage, making teas and coffees, selling tickets, printing programmes and generally doing all the boring mundane tasks without being in the limelight. The mantra leading up to a show was always, ‘Don’t worry, It’ll be alright on the night’, although sometimes we just about made it by the skin of our teeth!
The show this year (Nov 30th and Dec 1st) is a change from our usual comedy, slapstick pantomime. It is a musical play based on Charles Dicken’s ‘A Christmas Carol’. It is the perfect piece to get you into the festive mood in the run up to Christmas. A lot of people from past shows are taking part in this production, some with a small cameo role. I feel very blessed to have been a major part in the group since the beginning, and I would like to thank all the audiences over the years that have attended and supported us in so many ways. Please buy a ticket and come along to help us celebrate our last show with this cast.
Regards, Pauline Martin

The format will be to start erecting your scarecrows in your front gardens from 22 June. On 6 July they can all be taken to the “The Church Garden Party” at the Rectory for display. The two following weeks they can be viewed arranged around the Churchyard after which we request they are collected.

Medway Council currently has four Air Quality Management Areas which are above the annual objective for nitrogen dioxide (a pollutant present in vehicle exhaust emissions).
The air quality management areas are:
Reducing road transport emissions within the Air Quality Management Areas and the wider area is a key air quality priority to help towards achieving their air quality objectives.
Tackling the Central Medway, Pier Road (Gillingham) and Rainham High Street Air Quality Management Areas falls under the current Air Quality Action Plan. This was approved by cabinet in December 2015.
Medway Council declared a new (fourth) Air Quality Management Area at Four Elms Hill, Chattenden in October 2017.
They now need to develop an Air Quality Action Plan for the area to work towards improving the air quality.
If you regularly commute through Four Elms Hill, Medway Council would like to hear your views.
Medway Council would like to get the views of residents, local businesses and stakeholders. They want to know what you feel the issue are and how they can work towards improving the air quality in Four Elms Hill.
Complete our short survey on the action plan and give us your views.
